Patrol Your Pleasures: When Jesus Won't Look The Other Way
Scripture: Matthew 5:27–5:31
When Jesus Won't Look The Other Way
Jesus & The Law: Restoring NOT Replacing
- Correction #1: Righteousness is about the Heart (vv.27-28)
– Outward behavior does not guarantee inward righteousness
- Correction #2: Righteousness starts in me (vv.29-30)
– My righteousness does not depend upon you
Conclusion: A Warning for “Church People”
- Hear this for you, not somebody else
Take Home Idea: A righteousness that images God must be a righteousness of the heart. And it starts in ME.
